Jurassic Park III

Synopsis: Dr. Alan Grant is now a happy man with the previous incidents of Jurassic Park now behind him. Grant is that happy that he announce in public, that nothing on Earth can persuade him back onto the islands. Maybe nothing, except Paul Kirby. Kirby and his wife, Amanda want a plane to fly them over Isla Sorna, with Dr. Grant as their guide. But not everything Kirby says is true. When the plane lands, Dr. Grant realizes that there is another reason why they are there, that he doesn't know of. Now, Dr. Grant is stuck on an island he has never been on before, with what was a plane journey now turned into a search party.

[Airplane approaching]

Better hurry.

Here you go, my friend.

Make sure you get us as close as you can!

I'll give you something extra|if you make it a good trip.

I'm going to get you close,|but not too close.

You don't want to be eaten.

-Ready, amigo?|-Ready!

One, two, three!


Eric, heave!

[Uplifting instrumental music]


This is great.

See anything yet?

No, not yet.

[Loud splash]

[Talking in island dialect]

-What was that?|-I don't know.

[Distant growl]

Hold on!

What's happening?|BEN: Just hold on!

Make it stop!

What happened to them?

I don't know. Oh, my God.

We're going to crash!|BEN: No, we're not.

I'm going to take this loose!

-Let go of the rope!|-We're gonna crash!

Move your hands!

Come onl

Here we go!

It's going be okay, bud.

Charlie, those are herbivores.|They wouldn't fight each other.

But these are carnivores,|and they really like fighting each other.

They use their teeth and their claws|to rip each other's throats out.

Alan, he's three. Let's wait till he's five.

Right. Sorry, Charlie.

Ellie?|ELLIE: Yeah?

It's Tom. He says he has to talk to you|about the last chapter.

Tell him I won't lose the Horner quote.|My editor thinks he's a paleontologist.

Hey, Mark!

Hey, babe, look who's here.

This is Alan.

Nice to meet you, Alan.

Daddy, this is a herbivore|and that's the dinosaur man.

Dinosaur man?

Jack, say my name. Is my name Alan?

Is my name Alan?

[Ellie laughs]

He used to know me.

It's sad, huh?|MARK: Here you go.

Thanks. Mark's been working|for the State Department now.

What do they do, Mark?

International relations,|mostly treaty law, things like that.

[Baby crying]

Call of the wild one.|MARK: I'll go.

You guys catch up.

Thanks, babe.

He's a great guy.

-So, what are you working on now?|-Raptors, mostly.

My favourite.

Do you remember the sounds they made?

I try not to.

All our theories about Raptor intelligence...

...what they were capable of,|we weren't even close.

-Tell me.|-We did cranial scans of a fossil skull...

...and found what looks to be|a very sophisticated resonating chamber.

Wait a second. So we were right.

-They'd the ability to vocalise.|-It's the key to their social intelligence.

Which explains|why they could work as a team.

They'd coordinate attacks so their prey|wouldn't know what was going on.

-They could talk to each other.|-To a degree we never imagined.


Ellie, they were smart.

They were smarter|than dolphins or whales.

They were smarter than primates.

I just wanted to say, if you ever need help,|sometimes you forget to ask.

So you can call me. Anything, anytime.


[Car starts]

You're still the best.

I mean that.

The last of my breed.

ltis through the study of the|anterior chamberin multiple specimens...

...that we can determine the correlation|between the upperpalate and the larynx.

This lets us theorise, theorise, mind you...

...that the Raptor was capable|ofsophisticated vocalizations...

...which would have been|a tremendous evolutionary advantage.

Raptors were fierce, intelligent...

...and socially sophisticated.

They were able to huntin numbers|and coordinate their efforts.

Were it not for the cataclysmic events|which overtook them...

...it's entirely possible|that Raptors rather than humans...

...would have become|the dominantspecies on this planet.

I hope this has been ofinterest.

It certainly excites us as paleontologists.

There is much more to discover.

Thatis why we continue to need,|and ask for, yoursupport.

Thank you.


Thank you very much, Dr. Grant.

Now, does anyone have a question?

Fine. Does anyone have a question|that does not relate to Jurassic Park?

Or the incidentin San Diego...

...which I did not witness?

Yes, sir?

Your theory on Raptors is good,|butisn't all this conjecture kind of moot?

Once the U.N. and Costa Rica and everyone|decide how to handle thatsecond island...

...scientists willjust go in|and look for themselves.

Dinosaurs lived 65 million years ago.

Whatis left of them is fossilised...

...in the rocks. And itis in the rock...

...that real scientists make real discoveries.

What John Hammond and lngen|did at Jurassic Park...

...is create genetically engineered|theme park monsters.

Nothing more and nothing less.

Are you saying|you wouldn't want to visit lsla Sorna...

...and study them if you had the chance?

No force on Earth or Heaven...

...could get me on thatisland.

What we got here, Nashy?

Einhorn 20-millimetre,|gas-operated semi-automatic.

[Cell phone ringing]

High explosive--


-It's Paul Kirby. Just checking--|-Yes, sir.

We're good to go here.

Matter of fact, I can lock things down|just as soon as you drop me that payment.

Well, that's right...

...two of the very best men|I could possibly find.

No, I haven't worked|with them personally...

...but believe me, sir, both of these men|come very highly recommended.

Are you all right?|UDESKY: Nothing to worry about, sir.

It's gonna be a walk in the park.

Billy, I don't think|I'm doing this right.

Let's try the toothbrush.

You've got to go slowly.

Just take a little bit at a time.

I can never tell what's rock|and what's bone.

Technically, it's all rock.

The calcium in the bones|is replaced during fossilization.
